From this day forward

Hi there! Boy howdy, this month is flying by just as fast as the rest of the year has! Just amazing! It's time to share my DT inspiration project for Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog's Challenge #14 - Run For The Border! This challenge requires a stamped, punched or fancy-cut border! And we're being sponsored by The Paper Nest Dolls! Whoot-whoot! Come play with us!

The Paper Nest Dolls generously provided us with several images to play with, and I chose "Love Birds Toasting" for my white-on-white wedding card. There's also a little bit of fuschia and silver in addition to the colors in the image. I actually ended up re-working this card, making it a little larger, using a different embossing folder, creating a vertical sentiment and rounding a corner. I just wasn't "feeling" the original version... unfortunately this happens to all of us at times. My featured border is the Martha Stewart Footlights edge punch which I actually forgot I had and think is just gorgeous!

I wove some tiny paper rosebuds into a beautiful white heart applique and affixed a pink pearl.

I used Glossy Accents on the glass and paper-pieced the bow to give it a little dimension. :)

Finally, here's a peek at the inside. Front and inside sentiments are from Leave Memories, a company which (sadly) is no longer in business.

  • GKD Pure Luxury white cardstock; DCWV fuschia shimmer cardstock; Silver mirror cardstock from stash
  • The Paper Nest Dolls "Love Birds Toasting" digital image
  • Copics: C1/3/5, BV11, RV25, R27, E00
  • Leave Memories - front and inside sentiments

  • Memory Box Forget Me Not Stem die
  • Cuttlebug Floral Fantasy embossing folder

  • Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and Venise applique heart
  • Light pink and white flat-back pearls; tiny clear gemstones
